Murray Plays His Perfect Match 

Andy Murray produced the perfect match of his life to dispel the memory of those distraught tears of just a month ago and make the man many regard as the greatest player tennis has ever known look simply ordinary as the All England Club’s Centre Court became the latest site of Britain’s gold rush.

The 25 year-old Scot, beaten in four Grand Slam finals with the most painful defeat coming on the same plot of hallowed turf four weeks earlier, beat Roger Federer in stunning fashion and to the outsider looking on the one-sidedness of the 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 score line was a perfect illustration of the dominance.

 

Federer Misses a Gold Medal Now, But There Is Rio de Janeiro Coming

Roger Federer has long stressed that the one notable thing missing from his resume after a singles career that has achieved almost everything else, is an Olympic gold medal. But the world no.1 was brimful of praise for Andy Murray after being forced to accept silver.

“Andy was much better than I was in many aspects of the game,” admitted Federer who beat Murray to win his seventh Wimbledon title on the very same Centre Court at the All England Club exactly four weeks earlier.

 

Murray Expects To Play In Toronto On Wednesday

Olympic champion Andy Murray has vowed to make the trans-Atlantic trip to Toronto Tuesday in a bid to play the Rogers Cup field after Roger Federer added his name to a lengthy list of withdrawals that already included the Spanish quartet of Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Nicolas Almagro and Fernando Verdasco as well as France’s Gael Monfils and Andy Roddick of the USA.

 

 

Chang Replaces Injured Agassi In Montreal

Andre Agassi has been forced to pull out of the Legends Night at the Rogers Cup with a back injury. He will be replaced by former World  No. 1  Michael Chang who take on another former World No. 1 in Jim Courier on Monday night at Uniprix Stadium.

 

 

Other Medalists Also Thrilled

Britain's Andy Murray and America's Serena Williams won tennis' most prominent gold medals, but they weren't the only players who left the London Games pleased.

Twins Bob and Mike Bryan won their first gold in men's doubles. The Williams sisters became the first players in history to win four Olympic gold medals. Max Mirnyi and Victoria Azarenka gave tiny Belarus a much needed medal when they won the gold in Mixed.

 

Does Bellamy Ever Sleep?

Steve Bellamy, founder of The Tennis Channel and The Ski Channel television networks announced the launch of a third endeavor into targeted sports media with The Surf Channel.  The Surf Channel launches in mid-September and will be a free to consumer, VOD television network on cable, satellite, telco and digital.
